Mellor Open Gardens 2020

2020 was time for Mellor Open Gardens again!

This event has run every four years now since 1992 and become a part of many people's calendar.

The Marple Website is delighted to be supporting and helping to promote this event but sadly due to the Covid19 outbreak the event is now on hold and postponed.

Mellor Open Gardens Postponed!

Mellor Open Gardens 2020


Raising funds for Cancer Research UK and Mellor Parish Centre

Every four years about 20 private gardens in Mellor are open to the public for the day, some new, some returners. This year the date was July 5th 2020 but that is now postponed.

You will be able to park your car for the day and forget about it because there will be a free jump-on-jump-off bus (one or more) travelling the area all day, taking visitors to the gardens of their choice. At the top of the village is the community centre offering a range of refreshments all day. In another location in the village the primary school is also offering a range of refreshments all day.

Admission to each garden will be by a programme with all garden details. These will be available to purchase locally on the day or in advance. A programme to admit one adult will cost £8 in advance or £10 on the day children under 16 years of age are free.

Details of how to purchase in advance will be available at a later date.

This event is in support of Cancer Research UK and Mellor Parish Centre. The committee fund raise from an early stage to cover the costs of the day by local sponsorship and gifts.
